case scenario for all of us in the region is when you get full-out civil war, there is no coming back. if it breaks down, if civil order breaks down to the point of no return, then it will take years to fix syria. and i have a feeling that we're seeing the signs of that over the past three weeks. the only people that can bring us back from that brink is obviously the president and the regime. and i believe this is the last chance that they have. >> my exclusive interview with king abdullah will air during our next hour during our 5:00 p.m. eastern hour here in "the situation room." you're going to want to hear what he has to say about syria a lot more detail. also, we spoke about mitt romney and barack obama in the interview. he's got some serious thoughts about these two individuals. >>> let's get to the presidential race right now. in today's republican triple play in ohio, not only is mitt romney campaigning there, so are two men getting mentioned, lots of mentions in fact, as possible running mates. the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, and the former florida governor, jeb bush. c

and everybody, the president, the secretary, everybody agrees that would be very devastating for u.s. national security and they want to avoid at all costs. >> thank you. that is helpful. rich, governor romney has said many, many times that he would not like to cut the defense budget, but at to the same time be inconsistent with lower taxes. within the framework of the problems that the country has to date with respect to the national deficit, et cetera, i don't know anybody who says you can't raise defense spending, cut taxes and accomplish anything with respect to the national debt. so how do you do that, sir? >> i should introduce you to more people. >> look, i heard the same thing in 1979 and in 1980. on the economy was crippled with double-digit inflation. >> you think is the same as in today? >> no, it's worse, but it can be done with the government's been clear about if he thinks we have to rebuild our navy. and he thinks obviously with the philosophical difference with president obama and governor reagan on the economy -- governor romney and president obama on the economy, it is one th
and that often kills them. to put a little close on this and a chance for us to converse, what is fascinating is the degree of duality in the great executive we studied. for example, is it 20 mile marching or defining moment in their capacity to do both? 20 mile marches with discipline and superb performance in a defining luck event moments that are out of their control. why did they do so much better? in the book, we noticed that over time, great executives will recall people had the genius of "and"as opposed to the tyranny of "or." it is humility and will. it is confront the brutal facts and having faith. it is productive and paranoid. when we stand back and look at a truly great enterprise, we see a huge duality under any great enterprise. that is what we call, preserved because for and stimulate progress - the core and stimulate progress. no great company exists if it does not have a core or stimulates progress. they are willing to change their practices, their strategies, there structures without compromising core values. they understand the difference between their core values and their

this is great for us, let's go to the american people and make this election a referendum on whether obamacare is good. >> it's never going to supersede jobs and the economy as an issue, though. i don't see it happening. what i do see happening is this t continuing dialogue on the romney campaign. calls for romney campaign shake-up continued to gain ground as news corporation rupert murdoch became a berserk tweeter over the weekend. >> sort of you like you, mike? >> he said in one tweet met romney last week, tough chicago will be tough to beat unless he drops old team and hires real pros. yesterday those concerns were echoed by jackwe welch of ge an he writes home mitt romney is listening to murdoch advice on campaign staff playing in league wi chicago pols. >> he's not there full time but he's at the table when big decisions are made and i don't know if jack welch or rupert murdoch can name someone who can win more campaigns than ed gillespie. it's true there are some people in there who have never won a presidential campaign. the president's campaign team is also relatively small and they've

how to use that information. to say that we have national coverage in really working with folks at that level is not true. but what we have are a set of programs with the mitigation center, with extension services on creating what we call drought-ready mounts whose major role is to be able to access and get guidance on the use of the information that we put on the web site. >> all right, thanks. .. i think that the program by would say is in its infancy of feral five or six years but already we have seen great gains in that regard and we talk about how can farmers access this information the weatherman for example in a state and agriculture states like oklahoma or rock stars, those other guys most people pay attention to when they watch the nightly news but now folks are starting to learn and farmers and producers on the ground are starting to learn they can access even more information related to drop through the drought portal which has been set up and through integration of noaa and scientists involved with land grant universities and that sort of thing, helping to get the wo
. for those of us who have had the pleasure and the honor of coming to know ryan well, this latest story is not at all surprising. it actually is quite in keeping with the character and actions of this superb, decent, selfless man, a man who i would call without question or hesitation the most excellent foreign service officer and one of the finest public servants i have ever known. for the past 41 years, ever since he was a junior diplomat serving in prerevolution iran, ryan crocker has consistently answered the call to serve in the most challenging, the most difficult but also the most important posts in the world. they were the places as it turned out where america needed ryan crocker the most, and he has always served with distinction. he was a young officer in lebanon when our embassy was bombed. ryan crocker helped to pull his colleagues from the rubble and then got back to work. he was one of the first civilians into afghanistan and iraq after the recent wars, helping to re-establish our diplomatic presence in both countries after decades. he returned to iraq during the surge, and
? >> i will say the way i get news is i use my twitter account to get almost all the news i get. for many people, especially young people, that is a cool way to do it. i find because i used my twitter stream -- i set up a specific group of people i follow for breaking news, and it has been built over several years, and it's really large at this point -- the point being i find i am a good 25 minutes ahead of people on breaking news because i am on twitter. i checked but other sources. that is my favorite way to follow news, and it feels the same as the shift when i was in newspapers. i was the only person reading blogs in the newsroom. twitter can serve the same purpose. can be fast and wrong, sorry you need to check. if you are a news junkie, that is my favorite thing. i also love "the wall street journal," fox is. i like to watch my own cliffs. hotair.com, because i work there now. the george mason university economists have their own blogs. a woman who works at newsweek -- i love reading her. aside from news, i like reading more analytical, wonky stuff. everybody done? since we are on c

that is where you are no longer going to use it. now you could still use the argument and you hear that argument more often on the republican side which is just sort of let them all slaughter each other, and without a great consideration of the strategic calculations in the middle east because it's sort of like the middle east, just go away. so, i think that is also a pretty powerful again, i would emphasize -- emphasize if you had to write now put your finger on something that would change the dynamic here, that has to be turkey. turkey. i think, i think professor -- professor, president obama's out of this one unless you see something happen in turkey or if you just see the slaughter accelerate at such a rate that we are more or less obliged to do something. it's possible that if the fsa could get ahold of aleppo and declared a free city to set up an opposition government in aleppo and figure out some way how to stop the armor, the artillery and the planes from driving them out at least for a while, that you could rapidly change the dynamic. and it would certainly be, it would certainly be an

"morning joe" starts right now. >>> i'm so tired of the president of the united states with the awesome seal that he gets to go around with, pointing, trying to create divisions, trying to punish people rhetorically for the hard work that will restore american greatness. the current president of the united states, i think, doesn't get it. he said on monday, i think right before he came here to this part of ohio, he said, in virginia, if you've got a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made it happen. that was kind of like saying that the private sector is doing pretty good. it's the economy that's

this weekend. watching the forecast for us, meteorologist justin, the heatwave taking up most of the nation's weather map. >> that's right. of course we expect hot temperatures this time of the year heading into week two of summer officially. we don't like to see this much heat, temperatures breaking records from denver, colorado eastbound to atlanta, georgia up into the upper 100s this afternoon. a clash of the air masses has fueled these giant clusters of storms. yesterday's cluster historic. these have been rolling quickly east and southeast cooler to the north warmth and humidity to the south, clash of the air masses dangerous recipe for severe weather. >> harris: we heard our correspondent in colorado saying cooler temperatures helped. not everybody is as hot as everybody else right now. >> that's right. the core of the heat is centered across the plain states slicing throughout the deep south. we will see some of this heat retreat and build back into the front rages not good news also aided by low relative humidity and dry thunderstorms. we need the rain throughout colorado and new me
you this morning. thank you so much for joining us. mitt romney had a big day up in the hamptons yesterday, big dinner at the koch brothers. price to get in? $50,000 a plate for $75,000 if you came as a couple. imagine that. >> that's more money than most americans make in a whole year. yeah. mitt romney, no man of the people. we will talk about mitt romney where his money and where he has parked it and a lot more on today's big full-court press. first, we go out to the los angeles to get the latest from lease a ferguson. hi, lease a. >> hi, bill. good morning. good morning, everyone. we are keeping an eye on a couple of things going on out of washington today. president obama will call for a one-year extension of the bush-era tax cuts for people making less than $250,000 a year. today's statement will draw -- excuse me -- a hard line between the president and house republicans who plan to vote this month to extend all of those bush era tax cuts permanently for both middle and upper income families. on friday, president obama called out mitt rom
. >> that is awesome. it's caught on camera. i'm ashleigh banfield. it's nice to have you with us every morning. it's 5:00 a.m. on the east coast. let's get started with this. go vote for someone else. how about that for a campaign pitch. fighting words for mitt romney after a pretty rough reception at the naacp convention. it was a tough sell to begin with though anyway. governor romney's really trying to convince african-americans that they'd be better served with him in the white house than with president obama. president obama has about 95ish percent support among african-americans. he misstepped when he referred to the president's health carrey forms as obama care. >> i'm going to eliminate every non-essential expensive program i can find, that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- >> yeah, those are the sound of boos. you might say ouch or maybe not. romney is getting beat up by naacp. listen to the president of the washington, d.c., branch describe that chorus of boos. >> he literally came to our house and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> an
of boos. >> he literally came to our house and attacked the issues that are important to us on our turf. >> and there you have it. that was the wrapup, at least from that presidency. shannon travis is live from washington, d.c., this morning. shannon, it really looks like mitt romney's just not backing down at all from this, and there are all sorts of people weighing in on all sorts of different reasons for why he may have gone to the naacp annual conference. wrap it up for me to start with whether this is going to have a residual effect in the negative or in the positive. >> reporter: well, we're still trying to weigh that, ashleigh. when i was watching it, it felt like one of those reality tv shows where the candidate on stage either lives or dyes by boos or applause. he was booed when he mentioned obama care which was a little surprising, because the people at naacp, it's not surprising that he is opposed to obama care. he got booed when he said he was a better president for african-americans than president obama is. last night at a fundraiser in montana governor romney basically pla
they could do it cheaper. give us a special model out there and launch it as a pilot and we'll show you how we can do these special programming and give us a return. well, after reviewing now what is a history of all of that, it was deemed that there were overpayments anywhere between 12% and 14%, so the dollars were slid over to programs like filling the doughnut hole and providing for screenings for our seniors. not taking it away from a category of health care consumers. in this case, an aged demographic of seniors, but taking those savings as we sweep those savings and reinvesting them in a way that provides balance, more sensitivity for the consumer rather than having record profits developed for an industry. to me that was progressive policy, and for people to then take those savings and use them in their own budget presentations for other purposes was disingenuous. now, when you talk about the efforts today of the affordable care act to include an exchange, what i think is oftentimes, representative garamendi, sometimes people see this as a public exchange that will be run by the gov
seen. i never saw any other case that resembled us in terms of the rule of law in the way it scrambled around priorities and the speed that they sold the company and distributed the assets. >> bubbled what role did the auto tax course administration play in the negotiations between the g8 and the uaw? >> i think the role that we played with the same that we played with most of the issues, which is to say that general motors, we defer to them in terms of their business judgment. about how to handle a particular matter, and i can see a negotiation would fall into that category. but we reviewed that decision to see if we agreed on that. >> do they have a fair amount of leverage? >> i think they had a fair amount. >> do think that they would've derailed the deal over the salaries of a few? >> i cannot speculate. >> i think our judgment at the time was correct. >> i think everyone in the case who had leverage exerted that leverage the uaw is no different than any other participant. >> do they think they would've derailed the negotiations? >> i truly don't know. >> but would you -- you would

it was always pick as many fights as possible. no. i think -- i think you -- wherever you are, you use the event to your advantage and if you're going into a hostile audience -- for me, and i think usually for most politicians, it's to do what tim kaine is doing, by the way, from what i've heard across virginia very well, he's going to all of his enemies first and saying hey, listen, i understand you're not going to be with me, but i'm going to always listen to you. you know, i always would go into neutrals. on this stage, i don't think there was any doubt about it he was playing to conservatives, some would say cynically and he was playing to independents saying, hey, you know, all the stuff you heard about me i only tell people what they want to hear, watch this. and let me give you one more clip, here's mitt romney when he got booed talking about president obama's health care plan. >> i'm going to eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find, that includes obama care, and i'm going to work to reform and save -- [ boo ] >> of course, steve rattner, throughout the day, mitt romney

and managing a lot of stuff. where is the story that tells us where he's going? i think that was a legitimate criticism. >> the president says it spared a question everything about a presidential candidate and the obama campaign has some questions about mitt romney's time at bain capital. a report from the boston globe says romney filed paperwork with the government where he claimed to be the sole owner and ceo of the private equity firm as late as 2002. the romney campaign says he had no input on investments or management of the company after he left to take charge of the winter olympics in 1999. at the heart of the issue, who was in charge of bain during the years from 1999 until 2001? that was the time period when bain ran companies that went bankrupt and invested in others that shipped jobs overseas. >> does virginia really want an outsourcer in chief in the white house? . >> the obama campaign ad has been running for weeks hammering romney over the outsourcing issue. >> it's false and misleading. >> the romney campaign is hitting back with its own ads. >> the obama outsourcing attacks mi
